Jeffrey Callen, chief of the University of Louisville Division of Dermatology, was recently named to a two-year term as president of the Association of Professors of Dermatology (APD).

The APD, a national organization, seeks to encourage medical education, research and exceptional patient care, particularly in training programs for undergraduate and graduate students.

“We are so pleased to see Dr. Callen assume the leadership of this prestigious organization,” Chairman of the UL Department of Medicine Jesse Roman said. “He is an outstanding member of our community and we are extremely proud of the many achievements he has had throughout a stellar career.”
